“The way we see it, the sister is also a revolutionary, and she has to be able to defend herself, just like we do. She has to learn to shoot, just like we do. Because the pigs in the system don’t care that she’s a sister; they brutalize her just the same.”

– Black Panther Party Chairman Bobby Seale, 1970

Radiating in Autumn

Autumn 2013

“You surrender to a lot of things which are not worthy of you. I wish you would surrender to your radiance … your integrity … your beautiful human grace.” – Yogi Bhajan

I am beginning this fall season feeling all tingly… The school year began great, my attitude has been wonderful, my eating habits are improving, and I slowly (but surely) becoming a beast in the gym!! Not only do I feel good I think I am starting to look better too, my radiance is emanating!! Friends and family members who did not see me all summer, have been telling me that I am glowing, or that I have a glow…. hmmm 😀 😀 😀 I like that!! This is a good GREAT thing; when others can see your radiance from the outside you know there is something good brewing inside… 🙂  Well I plan to keep nurturing it and passing it on.

Oh how I love this snuggly season.

Don’t wait around for those goodbyes.

“What I was really hanging around for, I was trying to feel some kind of a good-by. I mean I’ve left schools and places I didn’t even know I was leaving them. I hate that. I don’t care if it’s a sad good-by or a bad good-by, but when I leave a place I like to know I’m leaving it. If you don’t, you feel even worse.”

– J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Riye
